hi, i am an architect doing my masters in urban planning in India. i came actoss this site while browsing planetizen and see that planners are a vibrant lot. i must admit that i was apprehensive about studying planning, but i am enjoying it thoroughly now. i see it as a subject with tremendous importance in our lives and you know it is so much a part of our lives. fortunately the planning profession is receiving the much needed recognition it deserves in India.i plan to practice in the field after my graduation and so am interested in knowing what's up the worldover. i am sure cyburbia is a great place to start on this. hope we have a great time together.
